A Goan youth has been arrested in connection with the killing of a Nigerian national, which sparked protests by his fellow men here, police said on Wednesday.

The special investigation squad, arrested Surendra Pal last night for hacking a Nigerian Obodo Uzoma Simeon to death along with others in Parra village, last week.

Pal was arrested from Chapora, a beachside village in north Goa. Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar had claimed the murder as a drug related crime.

Simeon was found dead with stab injuries last week. His murder has led to protests by Nigerians who had blocked the national highway, creating ruckus.
